Rock Shoe Naming Contest

The Shoe Formerly Known as the Rad Moc


Hello Fellow Northwest Climbers,


We need some help renaming our Rad Moc. Whoever has the best name gets a free pair and others with clever names might get some swag anyways. But it will have to be pretty clever.


They are an awesome slipper style shoe with a single strap over the top to ensure they stay put while heel hooking. The 3D compression molded climbing rubber leads into a descent tread on the sole. Great for cracks and face climbing.


Thanks for your help!

Gotta love Lawyers :rolleyes: especially one's from L.A. First thought would be the Kardashian or perhaps the Cochran or even better yet the Shapiro but to avoid further run ins with scum of the earth lawyers, why don't you call it "THE GLOVE" ;) or would that cause another riot :)




after all the chalk bag and shoes i'm wearing in this picture were bought from climbmax on hawthorne :)

I love 'em I love 'em keep them coming. Since we are the first and only climbing shoe company in the Pacific Northwest (and if someone can lay claim to someone who was here first, please educate me) I am not opposed to something PNW themed.


Thanks to everyone participating and brain storming - this is fun.

Sure is, amazing what a little research digs up! Now did your company really say this?


“… a new name has been chosen to set us apart and differentiate this company from the previous one: we are now Climb X. Same sales team. Same distributors. Same production facility. Same product development staff. The same award-winning products.”


Found that here:

Vikki Weldon blog


She seems to suggest you were implying that you were a reincarnated Mad Rock.


So I'd be interested to hear your take on this here on CC.com, care to reply?

Anyone else gone over ClimbX's website? ALL of their gear looks to be Mad Rock product that they've re-stamped with ClimbX. Sketchy operation if you ask me.


EDIT: Gone through the whole site now. The only thing I can find on their entire site that is not a direct copy of Mad Rock design, pattern, etc. They didn't even bother changing the name for the Galaxy Harness they stole from Mad Rock.



Is their incredibly bulky looking Gold Locking Carabiner. These fuckers aren't even a well run scam.
